Catholics believe no talk of dignity, justice and peace is meaningful in the face of abortion

"a society lacks solid foundations when, on the one hand, it asserts values such as the dignity of the person, justice and peace, but then, on the other hand, radically acts to the contrary by allowing or tolerating a variety of ways in which human life is devalued and violated, especially where it is weak or marginalized"

(Evangelium Vitae, 93; cf. Caritas in Veritate, 15).

-- Pope Benedict quotes Pope John Paul II in his speech upon the occasion of acceptance of the credentials of the new US ambassador to the Holy See, Honorable Miguel Humberto Díaz.
